Presented to San Francisco Police Judge Matt Brady, this 1929 California NATIVE SONS OF THE GOLDEN WEST styled 14k solid gold figural badge: “GRAND PAST PRESIDENT.” These are extremely uncommon and were given out to special individuals within that group and rarely to others. The workmanship on this piece is superb with both the California Republic BEAR flag and the U.S. flag adorned with beautiful and detailed enameled work.  The theme of this piece is purely California depicting an imposing Figural GOLD MINER with his mining tools, next to an iconic California Grizzly Bear seated. Up against the miner is a gold pan with a natural native gold nugget.   The miner is gripping both flags in his two hands.
To my dear friend Judge Matt Brady on his 53rd Birthday April 1st 1929.  From Eddie Geosler.
